Pitso & Komphela Amongst The Longest Serving Coaches In The PSL

Who are the PSL's Longest Serving Coaches

By Kyle Smith - Jun 24, 2017 01:56 PM @KyleLaduma

As the coaching roundabout continues in the Absa Premiership, we take a look at which men have been in their club's hotseat for longer than anyone else that's currently activein the league.

SLTV: Bacela Believes Wome Is A Bucs Player

Changing head coaches in football is by no means uncommon and gone are the days of long term servants such as Sir Alex Ferguson, but, in the Absa Premiership, it may come as a surprise to many that there are very few coaches that have held onto their jobs for an extended period of time.

Click through the images above to see who the top five longest serving coaches in the Absa Premiership are.

The longest serving coach in the PSL at the moment is Pitso Mosimane, who was appointed as Mamelodi Sundowns’ head coach on 2 December 2012. Four and a half years later and he has added every trophy possible to the club’s cabinet, which is undoubtedly behind Patrice Motsepe’s decision to keep him at the club.

The next coach in line is Gavin Hunt, who has been in charge at Bidvest Wits four little over four years. He was appointed on 28 May 2013 and the club’s faith in him has been repaid after he led them to their first league title at the end of the 2016/17 season.

Then, despite the wave of criticism that’s come his way, Steve Komphela is the third-longest serving coach in the league, with just more than two years at Kaizer Chiefs, having been appointed on 17 June 2015.

The next coaches in line are Clinton Larsen, who was appointed as Golden Arrows’ coach on 5 December 2015, while Luc Eymael rounds off the top five, having been appointed as Polokwane City’s head coach on 6 July 2016, but his future remains up in the air, having departed the club for Bloemfontein Celtic in March, only for the PSL to rule that his contract with Siwelele is null and that he remains under contract with Rise and Shine.

Mr. Editor, stop comparing Steve with Pitso. We all know Pitso deserves every minute to be a Sundowns coach unlike Steve who has been at Chiefs maybe for reasons only known to the Motoung family. He has won nothing and everybody knows even they can give him another 10 years he still wont win anything!

@Xolisa{khosificated}, Kaizer's lack of vision is starting to show. His reliance on gate takings was a bad planning. There is no doubt fau faithfools' absence from stadiums negatively affect the club's annual budget. He must come with plan "B".
